A suicide bomber has injured three people in an attack in the Sri Lankan capital, Colombo.
The woman, who died in the attack, was stopped from entering the offices of Welfare Minister Douglas Devananda, and blew herself up outside.
Two of the wounded are reported to be in a serious condition. The attack comes a day after the Tamil Tiger leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran, said hopes for peace were naive, after increased fighting in the north. ( BBC )
